Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Thimdoy, February 54, 1972 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAtO J-amil y Women's magazine has feminist slant liy MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor The ition of Ms. (pronounced the glossy new magazine for women with a mind, is now available at 26 news stands in Lethbridge. For it's pos- sible to delve into a sophisti- cated afsortmenl of printed goodies slanted to the liberated woman. Dress patterns, handicrafts, recipes and all the other homey little touches of pre-Ms. women's magazines, have been ruthlessly eliminated. The writers, devotees of the feminist cause, are apparently prepared to go into infinite va- riations on their theme. For the average reader, it is the misfortune of the magazine that there is only the one theme. Repetition tends to lead to monotony. However, many of the ar- ticles are lucid, interesting and informative, once the reader has overcome the authors' oh- vious prejudice.

A tremendous amount of energy has been expended on the birth of Ms; unfortunately with negative results. Its mes- sage comes over loud and clear and repeatedly up with women, down with men (the According to Dick Iladling- ton of General News Co. Ltd., too copies of the magazine I have been distributed in South- ern Alberta, including 40 to 50 within the city it-self. Sales were checked after a three-week period, and assess- ed at roughly 50 per cent. Once the public's initial cu- riosity has been satisfied, it is doubtful if the magazine will appeal to anyone but the most ardent feminist. Meanwhile, lesser mortals will probably turn their atten- tion back to the kind of litera- ture sending out the signal, "up with people whatever their sex." Pig gives cold shoulder to wife of U.S. president PEKI NO (AP) Barc-i headed in a snowstorm, Mrs. Richard Nixon today visited an agricultural commune where she mingled with schoolciuld- ren, observed wintertime culti- vation of vegetables and saw 68-year-old woman getting an acupuncture treatment. The wife of the U.S. president walked through intermittently heavy snow, moving down al- leys and across furrowed fields at the ti.OOO-acro Evergreen People's Comnnmc of Pe- king. Mrs. Nixon was captivated hy the schoolchildren she saw. marvelled at the growing of out-of-season vegetables under glass and even tried futilely to make friends with a rather dirty hog in a sty. She was most surprised, how- ever, to observe in the com- mune clinic the ancient Chinese acupuncture medical treatment based un the insertion long needles into the flesh. The two young women who give the treatment told Mrs. Nixon that they attend to about a dozen patients a day. They showed her a grey-haired woman lying on her side on a cot with more than half a dozen needles protruding from her right arm and leg. the woman said those limbs had been so numb before she began a week-long series of acu- puncture treatments that she could hardly walk around her small home. Now she can cook, she reported. The pig Mrs. Nixon tried to entice within petting distance was corralled outside a tiny, spotlessly clean cottage. Warned by a reporter that the pig might bile, Mis. Nixon said she lived on a farm as a girl and "I once raised a prizewin- prize." Mrs. Nixon later visited a glass factory and invited the revolutionary committee leader to visit the United States. "it's fascinating, it's really she said as she in- spected the glassware products and admired the girls at work. During a one-hour visit to the factory, she spoke to at least 20 girls, who were working on a wide range of glassvtere. This included tiny colorful anirnais, the ]2 animals of the zodiac calendar and flow- ers. At the end of the visit, Mrs. Nixon was given two small boxes and one large flat case containing two small glass ani- rooster and a and a large glass magnolia flower. Abortion solution to overpopulations CALGARY (CP) Over- population is so critical an is- sue that Canadian women should support political parties which favor abortion on de- mand, says gynecologist Dr. Ken Walker. Dr. Walker, who wrote "On Being a Woman" under the name W. Gifford-Jones, said overpopulation is more serious for a country like than for one with less development. "Nigeria's population will double in 15 years; Canada's will double in 35. But during that time the Nigerian people won't want to double their number of roads, telephones and other supporting sen-ices; Canada's people will." The resulting drain on re- sources would be far greater in Canada than Nigeria. The alternative to limiting births is unlimited population growth, he said, which breeds crime, poverty and other social ills. The current hospital method of committees reviewing re- quest for therapeutic abortions is "a ritualistic farce." "It is one of the basic con- cepts of medicine never to pass judgment on a patient without seeing him." Yet hospital abortion com- mittees judge abortion cases on the basis of the applicants' pa- pers, Dr. Walker said in an in- terview. The current approach to birth control pills is hypo- chondriacal, he said, with poli- ticians and others emphasizing their liabilities and devaluating their advantages. About 14 out of one million women died from blood clots attributed to use of the pill, but 300 out of the same number dip i in childbirth.
